oh no micah, I'm disappointed you don't like prelude/part 1! I personally find it to be quite stirring lyrically and Weir's guitar arrangement for the prelude especially (something he fiddled with for years) is pretty brilliant. To each there own though, no hard feelings ;)

I'm not too familiar with most post- '74 LIGs. The one on Without a Net is pretty epic. Also I really dig 10/29/77 and 5/1/81.

Here's my breakdown of the best pre-hiatus LIGs (I've heard most but not all):

9/11/73
10/25/73
11/11/73
11/25/73
11/30/73 -> Dark Star jam
12/8/73
12/18/73
2/23/74
6/18/74 -> Jam -> TOO
6/28/74 -> Jam -> MLB Jam
7/19/74 -> Spanish -> Eyes
7/29/74
7/31/74
8/4/74 -> Jam -> Wharf Rat
9/10/74

Edit: OK so not that anyone probably cares but I just listened to Dick's Picks 14 and I've decided that the 12/2 LIG is superior, as much as I love 11/30's cool jam. And I would like to add 10/21/73 as at least an Honorable Mention - some really emotional jamming in that one.
